The bench #FridayFotoFiction

Everyday as I walk I find the bench beckoning to me .

“Come sit down and rest ”

But I continue walking. With steady resolve I continue .

“I will walk past you, ” I tell the bench , “even if it kills me .”

I take the second round and the third. By the time I begin my fourth round , I’ve begun to work up a sweat. I run my fingers through my sticky hair.

I see the bench looming ahead. “Come , sit down” I hear its taunt”.

I finish my walk, the sixth round  passing the bench for the last time.

“See you tomorrow!”


I was intrigued by the #FridayFotoFiction and found it an interesting linkup party hosted by Tina Basu.

Also linking this up with Corinne’s #MondayMusings 

and since I’m already in it for this month,

    The taunting staring bench! The last line left me smiling. The walking person won the test today by foregoing the bench to again work on her resolve tomorrow.

    Kudos to the protagonist! We all are tempted by benches and beds, aren’t we? Brave are those who overcome the yearning to fall prey to laziness.

    Really great short story! Thankfully that bench didn’t hold a bag of your favourite food. Shhh, before the bench hears me and gets any ideas about how to weaken your resolve. 😀
